Notes And Use Of Oxygen Cylinders

An oxygen cylinder is a high-pressure container for the storage and transportation of oxygen, generally made of alloy structural steel hot stamping, pressing, and cylindrical. Used in hospitals, first aid stations, and nursing homes. So how do you use an oxygen tank? Here is a detailed introduction to you.

How to use:
1. The valve parts of the oxygen cylinder should be completely removed from the oil, and the oil can be cleaned with carbon tetrachloride; When transporting, the cylinders should be placed horizontally in the same direction, and fixed to avoid collisions between the cylinders and violent vibration; When using, the gas cylinder should be placed vertically and fixed with a bracket to prevent toppling; The distance between oxygen cylinder and acetylene generator, flammable goods or other open flame is generally not less than 10m. When environmental conditions do not permit, it should be ensured that it is not less than 5m, and protection must be strengthened.

2. In summer, the gas cylinder should be prevented from sunlight exposure. A temporary shed and cover should be set up for outdoor use. In addition, it should also prevent direct exposure to high-temperature heat source radiation, so as not to expand the gas in the bottle and explode; The oxygen in the cylinder is not allowed to be all used up, at least 0.1~0.2MPa of the remaining gas gauge pressure should be left; Cylinders must be fitted with caps and anti-vibration rubber rings. Open flames and smoking are not allowed in places where oxygen tanks are centrally stored.

3. It is forbidden to transport oxygen cylinders and dissolved acetylene cylinders or other combustible gases together or in the same car; It is forbidden to roll down the gas cylinder directly from the vehicle or the height and to carry the gas cylinder on the ground. It is forbidden to deal with the leaking gas cylinder by pressing the screw of the cylinder valve or slamming the adjusting screw of the pressure reducer; Oxygen cylinders shall be inspected regularly per the Regulations of Gas Cylinder Safety Supervision issued by the State Administration of Labor. Expired gas cylinders that have not been inspected are not allowed to continue to be used.


1. The gas in the oxygen cylinder should not be used up, and the residual pressure should be retained at no less than 0.05MP; The distance between the oxygen cylinder and the open flame should be no less than 10 meters, and should not be near the heat source or be exposed to the sun. It should be stored in a dry and cool place, and the gas cylinder should not be struck. Oxygen cylinder nozzle, inhaler, pressure gauge, and interface thread shall not be stained with grease.

2. Oxygen cylinder in transportation and loading and unloading, to close the valve, tighten the cap, move gently, and do not collision sliding, throwing and fall. When the oxygen supplier is moving, parking, and using, please pay attention to the protection of the cylinder body and valve to prevent the cylinder from tipping over, so as not to cause damage to the accessories; If air leakage is found during use, please close the cylinder valve immediately. Please don’t fix it yourself. It is strictly prohibited to disassemble the parts on the oxygen cylinder valve, valve switch, pressure gauge, and other valves without permission; Users are strictly prohibited from filling oxygen without permission. Oxygen cylinder inflation pressure shall not exceed the stipulated pressure, it is strictly prohibited to overload; The gas cylinder shall be inspected once every 3 years and can be continued to be used after passing the test. The inspection shall be carried out in the inflating unit.
